The Cinematography of "The Incredibles" - Part 1

With so many nice angles that keep making the shots look visually interesting even when they are meant to be very simple, all reminds of the show Mad Men. Almost that retro look, I suppose The Incredibles is meant to be set in the 50s and then once they flash forward to after the marriage and the trial we're in the 60s. It's strong, graphic, bold cinematic storytelling displayed in the visual grammar of this film. Like in the Mad Men, The Incredibles has sleek color combinations and contrasting shapes, well balanced imagery, textures space on the screen is well balanced with flat texture-less areas, particular areas of each shot hold certain amounts of weight and value. See all the crazy angles in the following shots. The Cinematography of “Pulp Fiction” (1994) @ Evan E. Richards. DSLRguide. The Cinematography of "The Incredibles" Part 3.

HorrorOldSchool. Spectacular Attractions. Jump Cuts: The Good, The Bad, of the Discontinuous Edit. Recently I asked the question to the Twitter-verse to get some insight from my fellow editors.

Jump Cuts: The Good, The Bad, of the Discontinuous Edit

The reason for posing the question was because I have taken an interest in YouTube Vloggers. It all started with Casey Neistat, the patron saint of new media content creators. This led me to another YouTuber, Sara Dietschy. She had produced a tongue in cheek breakdown of “How to VLOG like Casey Neistat” which after a mention from Casey propelled her from 4,000 subscribers to 40,000 in one day. Impressive. After doing some research, I found that Sara is one of the Adobe Creative Residents for 2015-2016. In looking at Sara’s work on YouTube, I noticed a few things. Jump Cuts. Now, Vlogs are one thing. But I was seeing these jump cuts in other more traditional types of content, in this case, Sara Dietschy’s Creative Spaces TV. The main issue for me is that an interview with a person should be as conversational as possible.

Flooby Nooby: Cinematography

Lighting, blocking and framing aside, colour and set design are obviously a big part of what we need to pay attention to, and here you can see a very specific pallet has been chosen for this film. From scene to scene there are different splashes here and there, but overall, shadows are warm and highlights cool - often, it's the other way around. Regardless, I absolutely love how colour was handled in this film. The pace of the first chapter is so perfect and the tension that Tarantino builds is almost traumatizing! To hit that sort of perfection you need amazing actors - Denis Menochet and Christoph Waltz bring so much to the story, far beyond, I believe, the genius words that Tarantino placed in front of them.

Film/Book Analysis. In this series of Favorite Films, we’ll feature the genre that drove many of us to do what we do: Animation.

Film/Book Analysis

There are countless films that feature the use of animation, from live action to fully-animated cartoon features, including those that have lost their grasp in our fast-growing technological society, namely Hand-Drawn (2D) animation and Stop-Motion (sometimes referred to as claymation). Despite the host of good CG films that have been made in the past couple of decades I opted for this select group of traditionally crafted films because of their extraordinary quality and their impact on me personally.

You may feel differently. That said, I hope that you’ll revisit these films (assuming you’ve watched them all before) and see them as the incredible wonders that they are.

As I head off to give yet another presentation on audiovisual forms of film studies research, I realised that as well as making around 130 videos since 2009—many of them public here—I have also published quite a lot on these topics, and to date all of those publications are online.So, below, I have pasted in the full list of those published reflections with clickable links to them, to accompany my latest published video essay, which just appeared in the most recent issue of the wonderful journal Lola.

Visual Storytelling in Filmmaking. February 22, 2015 Film is a brilliant combination of written word, music, sound and pictures, so this week we’re looking at the ways we can tell a story visually, rather than always relying on dialogue to explain things.

Visual Storytelling in Filmmaking

Too often, we rely on a narrator to tell the story, or have characters awkwardly explain things to each other so the audience can understand. However it’s true that films do usually need dialogue, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with using a narrator. The key is to be on the look out for better ways to tell the story, and this often means using visuals. It’s one thing for a character to say exactly how they are feeling, but if can get them to show how they’re feeling then that frees up the dialog for other uses. This Study of Steven Spielberg's Cinematography Can Help You Master the Long Take.
